Hey there! I'm Daigo, your friendly neighborhood host here in Tokyo. One of my favorite pastimes is exploring the hidden corners of this lively city, capturing snapshots of authentic Tokyoite life along the way. You'll often find me lost in the stacks of bookstores, enjoying the rich stories they hold, especially in the charming neighborhoods of Shimokitazawa and Shinjuku. As your Tokyo go-to, I pride myself on navigating the city's railway system and exploring its fascinating history. From temples and shrines to tales of Samurai battles, I've got the inside scoop on Tokyo's captivating past. So, whether you're a curious traveler or a fellow local seeking new adventures, I'm here to show you the heart and soul of Tokyo with a sprinkle of humor and a whole lot of adventure. Let's explore this vibrant city together!
